Data Fusion (carried out 2015-2016) has been an interdisciplinary pilot project on urban modeling and data visualisation, involving geo-visualisation, architecture and urban planning, transportation and logistics, applied acoustics, interaction design, and computer graphics. The core of this project was to bring different expertise together and explore various representations of geo-referenced heterogeneous urban data in 2D and 3D city models.

The project was a new collaboration between research teams from the departments of Architecture, Applied Information Technology, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Technology Management and Economics. The teams are all connected to Visual Arena Research (VAR). The involved Areas of Advance are Built environment, Transport and ICT. The e-health unit at Västra götalandregionen joined the project at a later stage to explore possibilities for health data in urban models. We have collaborated to understand how to improve the existing, different models, and formulate future research.
